The 8TB N2 NAS Storage Solution with 1 Year Synology DSM from ioSafe is a disaster-proof private cloud device that is designed to protect and secure terabytes of data.
Designed to be the center of your private cloud, the ioSafe N2 is powered by a Synology DSM motherboard and operating system. It allows for fast access on your local network and remote access from nearly any device connected to the Internet - all secured and protected by you. ioSafe protects from natural disaster by wrapping its patented protection technology around vulnerable private cloud data onsite. You get fast local access, redundant hard drives, security, nearly unlimited storage and cloud convenience, access to data with virtually any device and onsite protection against natural disasters. You can use this solution alone or in conjunction with your existing backup and DR practices. This technology is a tool that helps to reduce your vulnerability to almost every situation. The advantages of the ioSafe N2 are speed, flexibility and disaster recovery. The ioSafe N2 connects to your home or business network, preferably at the main router or switch. A network drive (or share) can be created that allows everyone on the local area network (LAN) with proper permissions to see the common drive (sold separately) and share the data. The data can also be made available to the wide area network (WAN, i.e., the Internet) by allowing applications and data to be forwarded to the NAS at your router.
The ioSafe N2 protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119. DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F (71.1°C), releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.
You can access your data anywhere from any device. All your data is in one spot and can be accessed fast when you're local (up to 100 MB/s) and when you're remote with just about any smartphone, tablet or computer. Enjoy virtually an unlimited amount of data storage and accessibility with none of the vulnerabilities and high fees of the public cloud.
The N2 protects data from loss up to 10' for 72 hours. HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.
Redundant Hard Drives (RAID)
This feature allows the N2 to automatically mirror and protect against hard drive failure. With RAID 1, your hard drives are automatically redundant to guard against a single hard drive failure. The N2 can utilize two hard drives up to 4TB each. The drives are hot-swappable in case of failure and will rebuild the volume back to a redundant state upon replacement.
Data Recovery Service
The ultimate safety net for the ultimate NAS, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service (DRS) provides a multi-use, no questions asked data and hardware recovery service.
Active Airflow Cooling
For optimum operating temperature, FloSafe active airflow cooling technology provides cooling airflow through the enclosure and across the disk drives during normal operating conditions. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in the event of fire, the FloSafe vent is designed to limit and protect your data from extreme heat.
You can make this device a part of your wireless network and hide it anywhere inside your house or workplace. Hide it as you might in a small safe. Additionally, a Kensington lock slot is standard. An Optional Floor Mount / Padlock Kit (shipping in January 2013) will enable the N2 to bolt down to any surface or be secured with a cable & padlock. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.
File Station makes sharing and managing files easier and safer than ever. You can create folders, copy and delete files in between your PC and ioSafe N2; when you accidentally delete a file it can be easily restored in the recycle bin. For businesses, File Station can boost productivity with support for Google Docs, Windows ACL, speed limit for individual users and many more.
Media Server can easily connect devices such as TV sets and stereo systems to your home network, and stream multimedia files stored on DiskStation to the devices so you can enjoy music, photos and videos.
Photo Station is an online photo album integrated with a blog for you to easily share photos with friends and family.
Cloud Station is a file-sharing service that specializes in file syncing between the ioSafe N2, PCs and Macs. It works like Dropbox but without any monthly fees or limitations.

Download Station is a web-based download application, allowing you to download large files from the N2.
iTunes Server allows you to share music and videos on your ioSafe N2 with any iPhone, Mac, PC, iPad or other iTunes client.
Mail Station provides a webmail service for you to access emails stored on your ioSafe N2.
Surveillance Station is a web-based application that can manage IP cameras to safeguard your home or business.
Time Backup is an innovative backup solution that backs up ioSafe N2 data in multiple versions.
